Rules for Visiting ODYD.
No children are permitted in the shop. Exceptions are granted for infants under the age of one in a car seat or stroller.
You MUST bring a VALID Military ID (no visitor passes) to check out an item.
Please ask our volunteers if you need assistance getting out of a dress. We would prefer to assist in getting you out safely to avoid damage to you or the dresses.
If you are sick, please stay home to avoid getting other patrons or volunteers sick.
To enter our shop you walk through the entrance of Santa's Workshop; we kindly ask that you do not touch anything in his Workshop. No lingering in the shop or waiting for friends. No children are permitted inside the shop unless Santa's Elves escort them. His elves are busy at work and we do not want to disturb them.
To respect our volunteers' time, our shop will close doors 10 minutes before official close times to allow us to serve those currently inside the shop. We will only accept people into the shop past closing time to complete the check-out process.
Each calendar year, each Military ID holder is entitled to one clothing item (dress/suit) and one accessory (purse, shoes, jewelry). If you have already received your item for the year please know we are unable to provide an additional item until the year resets.
